FISH WITH ORGANIC RED PALM OIL & PEANUTS

¾ cup Organic Red Palm Oil
1 whole white fish, patted dry, and cut into serving size pieces (save the head)
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp. coriander
½ tsp. ground ginger
½ tsp nutmeg, grated

Salt (to taste)
Black pepper (to taste)
Smoked or dried shrimp or prawns (or fish); half of it ground into powder and half for garnish
2 tbsp peanut oil
1 onion, finely sliced
1-3 chili peppers, cleaned
1 cup peanut butter (natural or homemade)

Heat a few spoons full of palm oil in a skillet.

Fry the fish and half of the garlic on both sides until done. Set aside on absorbent paper.

Grind together the coriander, ginger, nutmeg, salt, black pepper, and half the dried shrimp (or fish).

In a saucepan bring four cups of water to a boil. Add the fish head and the spices and ground dried shrimp (or fish). Reduce heat and let simmer.

Heat a few spoons full of peanut oil in a clean skillet. Fry onion and remaining garlic until browned. Add chili pepper. Reduce heat. Add the fried fish to the onion-garlic mixture.

Remove fish head from broth. Strain broth if desired. Add peanut butter. Stir until smooth. Simmer over low heat until it is thickened into a sauce. Pour the thickened sauce into the skillet over the fish and onions. Add remaining dried shrimp (or fish). Simmer together for a few minutes.

Serve fish and sauce over Rice, with Plantains on the side. The cooked chile peppers can be served or discarded as desired.

Serves 4-6
